“Disappointed”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

I think, it has the location advantage. Because you only have an axess to alcohol in 5 star hotels. It was a fresh air when it had been opened. Nowadays, it is by far too crowded. Service is really bad. Quality of dishes just goes down. they are not creative . Same dishes for a while, repeating the same menu.

Thanks for being in Doha. The competition is not really hard so they get really spoiled I believe. Some waiters are worde than the other, food is late. Tables are very close to each other, hence it is really noisy.

“Epic Friday brunch”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

By my opinion the best Friday brunch in Doha. Great food, great music and all you can drink alcohol. What is there not to like?

“Sensitive to finest details”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

This was our first visit to spice market, and I went there with my wife. We enjoyed every bit of the ambience and hospitality
The food was excellent especially the black pepper shrimps and short ribs
The ginger ice cream was so authentic

While it is true that the portions could have been bigger, I think this is speculative

Basoya, our attendant was very sensitive to details. My wife who was pregnant had dropped a spoon, and basoya rushed from an end of the restaurant to get it before she could force herself

Keep up the good work!

“Gastronomic Glam!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is a cool restaurant. Asian Fusion is cool food. The W, is a cool hotel. Not a bad mix then?

Spice Market excels on many fronts.. rich exotic decor, great food, great drinks and fantastic staff!

The managers are all excellent and the waiting on staff are fast, knowledgeable and polite.

I have been a few times now, and can vouch for the rapidity of the "express" lunch, as well as the laid back vibe that comes after dark.

Short Rib, Duck Curry and the acclaimed Ginger Fried Rice hit the spot... with Mongolian Lamb Satay, Vietnamese Spring Rolls and the truly awesome Black Pepper Shrimp with Sun Dried Pineapple (who knew???) also now on the fav's list!

You wont regret it... book now!
